Crooked Cat: Now Accepting eBook Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone | June 11, 2015

Updated May 2cd 2018 – I have concerns because they removed their submissions page. They seem to still be publishing new books and there are references to their submissions page. I don’t know why they would remove it if this was just a temporary closure to submissions, and I worry this is indicative of larger problems. Even if they re-open to/ add back their submissions page, I would not recommend submitting to them for a while.

Crooked Cat is a multi-genre e-book publisher, that has five imprints focusing on a variety of subjects, covering the range from young adult to mystery. They are based in the UK and have previously published over eighty books.

The six imprints are:

  • Black Line (crime, thriller, or mystery)
  • Red Line (women’s fiction and chick lit)
  • Blue Line (historical fiction)
  • Green Line (contemporary fiction)
  • Love Cats (romance).

They are a smaller company. They have a good social media presence. Recently they updated their website and it was a real improvement. At the time I am writing this they feature the next book to be released with a countdown timer on the main page. It is easy to find eBooks to purchase on the website which was earlier a real issue. Also the focus is now on selling books, not recruiting authors. Which is a big step forward.

Authors tend to publish multiple books with Crooked Cat, which is a good sign. Their contract is supposed to be fair and meet all of the industry standards. Also, they do directly link to their books on their social media pages.

To learn more or to submit, visit their website here. Their submission guidelines are very straight forward and you submit via an easy to use submission form.
